 What is the difference between sc.exe and scppn.exe?

sc is a driver program that calls scppn.
 Where can one find information about that?

scppn.exe isn't documented because normally it should not be run directly. Use sc.exe (or preferably dmc.exe, the exact same program) instead. P.S. Switching from sc.exe to dmc.exe is necessary because Windows XP added an 'sc' command.

scppn is the program that does the main business of compilation. It holds
the latest version

dmc is a driver program and rarely changes. In fact, the last I was aware,
it was stuck at 8.29. Walter must have updated it recently.

This issue is a constant source of nags, but Walter seems adamant to not
listen to all our demands, as is his right.

One thing I think would be useful would be if dmc.exe ran scppn.exe and
displayed its version as well (or instead of) its own. That way it would
truly represent the latest version of the compiler distribution
